Why tea is so healthy?
Tea is famous for its myriad of benefits. Not only is it the second most consumed beverage in the world, just after water but can also be consumed in different forms, thus adding to its popularity. Tea is one of the healthiest beverages to go around because of its high concentration of antioxidants called polyphenols, which may prevent in the occurrence of cancer, osteoporosis and cardiovascular diseases. Although such nutrients are found in many foods, as well as coffee, tea still tops the list because of its uniquely rich polyphenols called catechins (particularly EGCG), which may be the most powerful ones of all.
